Frank Gilroy Consultant Physiotherapist Glasgow

I am a Consultant Physiotherapist with 39 years experience:

  • I worked at Hampden Sports Clinic for 17 years
  • I worked for 27 years within the NHS, latterly as a Superintendent Physiotherapist 
  • I am currently a Contracting Physiotherapist for a number sports organisations:
    • Scottish Football Association
    • Professional Jocky Club 
    • Scottish Rugby Union
  • I am a Physiotherapy advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgical Service (GSSS)

Currently, I am seeing private physiotherapy patients at my clinics in Cardonald near Paisley, and Hyndland in the West End of Glasgow.

I have extensive experience in Pre and Post Surgical Management with a special interest in:

  • Hip Replacement
  • Knee Replacement
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction
  • Ankle and Shoulder Surgery

I see both insured and non-insured patients.  Insured patients are often referred from Ross Hall and Nuffield Hospital, as well as those who I saw previously when I worked at Hampden Sports Clinic.

I aim to see patients 1 or 2 times and will provide advice and exercise resources that will enable them to continue their rehabilitation at home.

About Frank Gilroy

Upon graduating in Physiotherapy in Glasgow in 1985, I spent 27 years working as a Physiotherapist within the NHS gaining experience in all areas of Physiotherapy including A ± E, paediatrics and orthopaedics. I gained my Masters in Biomechanics from Strathclyde University, Glasgow in 2009. 

I have previously worked with Celtic FC and currently do clinical work with the Jockey club, the Scottish football association and the Scottish rugby union. In addition to my clinical work, I am a visiting Physiotherapy lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University and the Physiotherapy advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgery Service (GSSS).

I have extensive experience managing patients following orthopaedic surgery, including looking after over 1100 Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) repairs in my career. Furthermore, I have written numerous physiotherapy post-op exercise protocols that are available on this website. This includes the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction Programme which I wrote with Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon Colin Walker. I encourage patients to take responsibility for their own health and completion of their physiotherapy exercises.

I work very closely with many of the orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow and Edinburgh and see many patients who have had surgery at Ross Hall and Nuffield hospitals in Glasgow. I am registered with all insurance companies.

This website has Physiotherapy exercise programmes for my patients’ use that have been written with orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow.  Patients will be directed to these programmes during their appointment and a password will be provided.  

 These exercise resources include:
